As much as I look forward to summer's warmth and play and bounty, I'm always ready to slow down around this time of year, for rain and cozy evenings.  There's just something magical about autumn and it's my favorite.  Rain poured yesterday as we drove to Silverton for coffee and then to a farm stand to get some corn to freeze.  It seemed the perfect time for a walk together, so we stopped along Butte Creek at Scotts Mills for a while before heading to Miller Cemetery & Church to wander through the gravestones.  The days of gray skies and bare branches are just around the bend and I am looking forward to the change - change in nature and light, change in habits, change in food, change in routine, change in adventure.  Are you?
